My valley fever disseminated to my brain in August of 2011. Highest titer of 16. Lost 50 lbs in 50 days. Headache, nausea, joint pain, brain fog, etc etc.

Was on 16 mg fluconazole until my titer went to negligible. When titer went o negligible Dr. reduced medication every three months. Now I am 200 mg per day maintenance. Symptom and fluconazle side effects also went to negligible. Feel much better now.

The first couple weeks of September, the air in the SJ Valley was extremely bad due to the fires in the Mountains. For a week there was even a pretty heavy ash type snow.

During this period I felt light side effects similar to when I had when the Valley Fever was at its peak such as head ache, joint pain, light night swets and lack of appetite an a small amount of nausea???

My question is Do you think the bad air may have agitated the area in my lungs that the VF effected and cause this light version of Valley side effects.

Now that the air is slightly better, I also am feeling much better.

I'm sorry you were breathing that in. The fires looked like a nightmare on the news. Particles in the air from the fire can cause all kinds of problems with the lungs, and even in someone who never had Valley Fever the symptoms could occur depending on what was inhaled. It is hard to know whether the problems from inhaling the ashy air would have that type of effect due to your previous VF infection. I'm glad you are feeling better now from both the VF and the air.
